Churro Cheesecake Bars

Delicious Churro Cheesecake!! These bars are covered in cinnamon and sugar and are the perfect sweet treat to your next get together.

Holiday baking season is in full swing at my house. I have several favorite holiday flavors, but when I want my house to smell like Christmas, anything with cinnamon sugar tops the list! Not only do these Churro Cheesecake Bars make your house smell amazing, they are absolutely scrumptious!

They are a perfect combination of two wonderful desserts – churros and cheesecake. Seriously so amazing! Every bite is melt in your mouth delicious.

Churro Cheesecake

The hardest part of the whole recipe is pressing together the seams of the crescent rolls. If you can find the crescent roll sheets, it is a real time saver. If not, roll them out on a floured counter or piece of waxed paper that has been dusted with flour. After you have pressed out all the seams, gently place the dough into your pan that has been sprinkled with cinnamon sugar.

After you spread the cheesecake filling on the crust, repeat the same procedure to roll out the second can of dough. Place it on top of the filling, then sprinkle it with cinnamon sugar. It looks good already, doesn’t it?

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 8oz packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 8oz cans Pillsbury crescent dinner rolls


  • Combine 1/2 cup sugar and 2 Tbsp cinnamon in a small bowl. Set aside.
  • Beat the cream cheese till smooth. Add the sugar, egg, and vanilla and beat till smooth and creamy. Set aside.
  • Spray a 9x13" pan with non-stick spray, then sprinkle half of the cinnamon sugar mixture evenly in the bottom of the pan.
  • Unroll the dough onto a lightly floured piece of waxed paper and press all the seams together. Carefully lift into the pan on top of the cinnamon sugar. Press to the edges of the pan. 
  • Spread the cream cheese mixture evenly over the dough. Unroll the second can of dough and roll it out the same way as the first one. Place it on top of the filling.
  • Sprinkle the remaining cinnamon sugar on top of the dough. Bake at 350° for about 30 minutes or until light brown.


If you can find the unperforated crescent dough sheets, you don't have to pinch the seams together.

  1. If i am making these the day before will they still be good?

    do you REFRIGERATE after they have cooled?

        1. That’s a good question! I haven’t tried splitting an egg! I would use an 8×8 & try the whole egg first.

  2. After they come out of the oven, do you put it in the fridge to cool before cutting? If so, how long?

    1. I would let it cool before cutting. You can either just leave out on the counter or stick in the fridge, if you want 😉

    These are incredible… one of the best Desserts weve made!! We literally cant stop eatinG them.
    Have you ever frozen them? Curious how THEY’D turn out. Thank you!!

    1. I am so glad you think so 😉 I personally have not tried freezing them. I am thinking they would be ok, but I would need to try.

    2. What if you would want to make the dough from scratch? Do you have a recipe for that? Love thIs idea!!

    1. After they are done baking, yes you can store in the fridge. I usually leave mine covered on the counter. They don’t seem to last long around here with kids loving them 😉

    I made these Several times now and they are amazing! But i was wondering if I am able to feeeze theM after baking? And if so how would i defrost them?

    1. I personally haven’t tried, but they should be ok. I would just take them out & leave on the counter to defrost.

    This was so easy and everyone loved them!!!! not overly sweet to appeal to dessert haters, but just sweet enough to satisfy the cravings. i enjoyed these slightly warm / room temp, but they were also great chilled.

    now that it’s the autumn, i’m thinking of adding some pumpkin puree to the filling.

      1. Made this this evening!!! Took it out of the oven about an hour ago. Waiting so we can try it with some milk. Lol! ❤️❤️❤️

    She does it again. These are so
    Simple and a family favorite. The texture is perfect and I love how easy it is to change to
    Create different flavor combinations. Although I usually just make it as is!
